Kris Kristofferson confirmed for Roskilde Festival 2013

The American legend is added to the Roskilde Festival line-up.

Roskilde Festival has a strong tradition of presenting some of the most important pioneers of modern music, and today’s announcement is no exception, as he is one of country music’s most prolific and important artists. “His songs have long since taken their place in music history among the greatest classics, and his latest records show that there is still a lot of musical and creative power left in him. To be given the opportunity to present an artist like Kris Kristofferson to the Roskilde Festival audience is a huge honour. He is one of the last living legends” says Peter Hvalkof.

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON (US) has an impressive catalogue that includes some of country music’s best known songs, and an influence on other musicians that places him among the titans of American music. Armed with nothing more than a guitar, harmonica and plenty of personal grit, the silver-haired multi-artist plays authentic country with a taste of bourbon, Nashville and stories about his own life’s ups and downs. Kris Kristofferson’s latest album, Feeling Mortal, is packed with songs of mortality and hard-earned wisdom, and according to many, the latest work of the former boxer and  US Army Captain with the poetic pen is among the best of his career. Get ready to meet one of the greatest at Roskilde Festival.
